minnesota governor tim pa-- pa-- tim pawlenty. in addition to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budget director, rob portman, and then what the "times" refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he suggested taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response

the last ten years, since george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewers here in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the "today" show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in the past just about everything. here he is sw

very long years of george w. bush and dick cheney. part of the republican wisdom about what happened in 2008 is simply that john mccain wasn't disgusting enough. that john mccain wasn't willing to indulge that enraged batty old ladies of his audience who heard somewhere that obama is an arab. part of the republican establishment thinks the lesson of 2008 is john mccain was too decent. if you wallow with the birthers and he's a secret muslim folks, if you run your campaign out of the comment section of youtube videos about the panama canal and the muslim brotherhood taking over the state department, part of them thinks that's how you win. the question is are they right? >>> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> the course we're on right now is foreign to us. it changes america. >> this idea of criticizing and attacking success, of demonizing those in all walks of life who have been successful, is something which is so foreign to us, we simply can't understand it
strategy was all about. we're in the process now of canonizing george h.w. bush, but it was george h.w. bush who gave us the willy horton ads in 1988, and ronald reagan who has already achieved sainthood in the gop, he started this general campaign in 1980 in philadelphia, mississippi, and that's where the three civil rights workers were killed, and that was just, to me, such a reprehensible thing to do. i was good friends with the mother of andrew goodman, one of those civil rights workers who was murdered. and she died a couple years ago, and i'm still good friends with his brother, david goodman. that family never recovered from those murders. and to give aid and comfort to the people who killed that young man who was only 20 years old at the time, is just beyond the pale as far as i'm concerned. >> the republican party as a safe house for bigotry is strong terms and you're making the case for why you're using language that strong. i wonder, though, if as a matter of political practice, the country is also a safe house for that kind of bigotry. the thing that underlied that whole fr

than george w. bush. >> no. they were avoiding bush, but now he's embracing bush. but i guess when you get in trouble in england you have to do what you have to do. >> it's better than insulting an entire nation. >> you can understand this. because i think the best advice came from e.j. deon. he wrote in his column that the next phase of romney's foreign trip, he says sure he may get better press on the latter parts of the trip -- later parts of the trip. perhaps he'll score some political points in poland and israel. but on the whole and this is what i agree, i think romney will want to stay away from foreign policy. the more we talk about it, the better obama will do. one of the first laws of politics is the thing that your opponent is strong in, keep it off the table. >> try to turn it into a weakness. but you can't turn obama's foreign policy into a weakness. this is the first time in a long time i can remember that a democrat is super strong on foreign policy. that's something he can hold up as a trophy. this i did well. so romney stuck with let's keep it about jobs and economy. i
